Traversing the 10 Crucial Day

Take a trip back to the Revolutionary War and retrace the 10 crucial days in 1776 that changed the course of American history.

On the Traversing the 10 Crucial Days bus tour, historical interpreters will share the story of George Washington’s daring Delaware River crossing on December 25, 1776 and his subsequent victories at Trenton, Princeton and areas in between.

Bus tours will be offered on December 4 and 10 and January 7 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cost is $150 per person and includes bus fare, lunch and donations to the Friends of Washington Crossing Park, the Washington Crossing Park Association in New Jersey, the Old Barracks Museum in Trenton, and the Princeton Battlefield Society. Tours begin and end at Washington Crossing, Pa.

Tour participants will travel to each location and hear from historical interpreters Roger Williams and Larry Kidder about how the terrain, weaponry and weather influenced the ways the battles were fought and how the lives of the local people were disrupted by them. See where armies marched, fought and struggled to survive on an otherwise peaceful landscape, while the course of American history hung in the balance.
